BigRoad Freight, an in-app platform that enables users to book loads in real-time, is extending its services to fleet-wide dispatch. Dispatchers will now be able to search shipments and allocate them to the drivers in their fleet with fast payment solutions.
The telematics-powered and AI-based service of BigRoad is expanding its initial program for owner-operators to fleets, enabling dispatchers to better manage load assignments and avoid dead-head miles.
"We experienced tremendous uptake of BigRoad Freight with owner-operators, and now we are scaling this innovative service to fleets," said Tony Lourakis, CEO of Fleet Complete, the owner of BigRoad.
BigRoad Freight uses AI-based algorithms to match the right shipment with the right driver at the right time. Armed with data on driver preferences, hours of service (HOS), equipment type, and a multitude of other telematics-based data points, BigRoad Freight sends personalized notifications to owner-operators that list curated load opportunities to help reduce empty miles driven and generate additional revenue.
BigRoad Freight application synchronizes with the BigRoad ELD data and enables users to search shipments, post their trucks, and view a curated list of loads. This capability will now be available to dispatchers, helping find shipments fast and allocate loads to the drivers in their fleet. Pricing information will be visible to dispatchers in fleet mode.
"We're now analyzing shipment opportunities and optimizing them on a fleet basis, not just a driver basis" said Grant Cleland, director of sales at Fleet Complete. "We're sending loads en masse and working to become a better technology partner in all aspects of our customers' businesses.”
BigRoad will continue to offer additional services, now providing more than 30,000 shipments every day, and offering inexpensive, rapid payment solutions that ensure carriers never deal with the hassle of collections.
